Not unexpected: Many acne products can burn the face but there are some which don't. You need to ask your dermatologist to try you on something else or find another dermatologist if he won't. Since some anti-acne products often irritates the skin, they may worsen your rosacea as well.

Doctors, please advice me a suitable cream or ointment, which can cure me from my face pimples....

Benzoyl peroxide: I see you have already begun rx. Topical benzoyl peroxide & topical Clindamycin are a good start, but many men need to add a systemic antibiotic such as tetracycline 500 2x/day. If it's quite severe, a dermatologist may offer you accutane; it's not pleasant & has some risks but it is very much worth it if simple rx fails. Good luck. ...Read more

The prescription latisse (bimatoprost) my dermatologist gave me not helping me grow out my eyebrows . Anything else I can do ?

Hypotrichosis: My first question would be how long have you been using the latisse (bimatoprost)? My experience is that latisse (bimatoprost) works very well if used properly and given enough time. This also assumes there is no underlying problem with your eye lashes. Assuming no medical issue other than short eyelashes, I would persist with the latisse (bimatoprost) and give it time. No other medication recommended for this. ...Read more

To dermatologists, is it okay if I mix facial toners? As in mix them in the same bottle? I have two that I like, and I'd prefer not to have to use them separately.

To dermatologists, is it okay if I mix facial toners? As in mix them in the same bottle? I have two that I like, and I'd prefer not to have to use them separately.

Generally not: I am not a dermatologist, but the reason to avoid mixing them is not a medical one so much as a chemical one. Different products use different stabilizers and binder to keep ingredients in a suspension (cream, ointment or gel form), and mixing products especially by different brands is likely to cause separation of the products into layers or cause curdling. which would hinder absorption. ...Read more
